Helen Bartlett / Family Portraiture

Children’s and Family Fine Art Photographer in London Bridge, SE1

What is Fine Art Family Photography?

I believe that fine art family photography is pictures taken with a rare creativity, images that are beautiful and could sit happily in an art gallery as well as on your wall.  On every photo shoot I strive to exceed my client’s expectations and create art that is timeless, beautiful and emotive.

Fine Art doesn’t mean posed images with dark moody backgrounds and gloomy expressions, instead it means photographing your family as you are, enjoying yourselves and having fun, with great technical skill and creativity.  London Bridge is a perfect location for family photography as there is so much stunning architecture to incorporate into our pictures, providing you with images that completely transcend the norm.

I take all my images in black and white as I believe this enhances the timeless quality of the pictures.  Black and white also focuses the mind on the subject of the images, on the emotions and expressions.  Because of the abstraction created by monochrome processing we look at the pictures more closely making these family pictures a powerful document of childhood and a wonderful source of memories for your children as they grow up.

My background and skills

I have been a professional family photographer since 2003 and over the years I have built up a wealth of experience.  My work has been recognised and widely published both nationally and internationally.  I currently hold a prestigious post as Canon Ambassador, the only family photographer in Europe to have this honour.

Your family and your photo shoot

I bring my skills to your family photo shoot and I guarantee you will be thrilled with the results.  We spend a morning together taking pictures and it’s always such fun, we can explore the area around your home or visit a famous landmark that your family enjoys, the area around London Bridge can be a wonderful location for family pictures.

Letting the children play and enjoy themselves with an eye to light and composition and also to the amazing architecture of London’s riverside the resulting images will be stunning and will look amazing on your walls or displayed in one of our beautiful albums.

Helen has been photographing our family every year since our daughter was born 12 years ago and now have a great record of our growing and changing family. Not only is Helen an excellent photographer who takes great shots of all the family, she also manages to do this in a relaxed and fun way.
